Is anyone affected by this? Our LES (pay stub basically) came out today and we're officially getting only 1/2 our paycheck! We have no savings, but we have lowered our bill enough that we're totally okay for a while, but I can't imagine all those families out there that are going to be really hurt by half a paycheck.

So far, not yet. My husband is not military, but he does work for the gov't. He only gets paid once a month, on the last work day of the month, so only time will tell.

We have 3-4 months of our expenses in savings, but I really hope we do not have to dig into that.

Wow, I'm sorry to hear y'all have to go through that! Of course, being in Canada, it doesn't effect me, but I feel so bad for those people who are affected by it
